    There is nothing new in this book. The author has to work for someone else, the whole book is basically about going green! I found no useful information in this book. All it does is repeat what others have written. I know that this planet is headed for destruction! This book is a very poor resource for beekeepers for information! I can not and will not give this book a good rating! I regret buying it! I was looking for something new, a new approach, but nothing I did not know! Rating: 1 / 5

    I ordered this because of the excellent reviews. I went to a class of Ag County and one at UC Davis. The information hand outs are 100% better. This book is very disorganized, with so much filler. It is also the east coast of information, not because Western bees “Havers” and caregivers. You can bring important information to 30 pages. In short go to take a class, use the information to print brochures and organization of the network. Your time and money better spent doing that. I donated my copy to the library. Rating: 1 / 5

    This book presents some great alternatives to natural beekeeping. However, the author wanders and can not focus on any single topic. I really wanted to pick up some new ideas about beekeeping this, and I find what I wanted, but finally gave up reading the book before I finished because the author’s style just wore me out.

    Great book on organic beekeeping with many useful information. It’s worth every penny for those who want to start or learn more about how and why organic bee-keeping is a necessity. Organic Beekeeping Beekeeping is essential for survival and the only answer to the CCD! Rating: 5 / 5

    As an apprentice beekeeper found this book easy to read and understand and very enlightening. I work with an old-time beekeeper, who (when I spoke of some of the techniques for managing natural bee played by Ross), was asked if he could borrow my copy of the book. . . (which incidentally still has not returned). The bottom line is: I’m going to have to buy another copy for me, as seems very close to that taken from me. Anyway, maybe the book was a bit too good to hold! Rating: 5 / 5
